Mudlarking: Audio Stories

A Bush Community Production

What do you treasure? Who do you admire? What great acts of kindness have you received? If you had to give the gift of a story, whose story would you tell?

Our Neighbourhood Company have been asking these questions of themselves, and venturing out to the Shepherds Bush community to find the people who are local treasures and unearth their acts of kindness and giving to others. They’ve developed skills in community research and conducting interviews and Mudlarking: Audio Stories is an exhibition showcasing the conversations they’ve recorded with their local treasures.

Audio Stories Contributors: Andrew Frederick, Sara Murphy, Susan Amadio, Lara Bruce, Doig Simmands, Robin Davies, Annie, Alyssa.

This stunning free interactive audio exhibition takes over the Bush front of house area for a limited run of one week.
